“Robin, you’re a c*nt” and “Robin van Persie, you know what you are” (?) were sung loudly from the stands, as well as replacing his name with Santi Cazorla’s for the song they used to sing for Van Persie.
It appears as though the players and manager don’t hold a grudge though. Ahead of kick-off, Jack Wilshere and co. shook hands with and embraced Van Persie’s before Andre Santos asked for his shirt at half-time. Arsene Wenger was also seen hugging the player as they walked to the tunnel, at that stage, with Van Persie’s goal the only thing separating the two sides.
